Ibiza restaurants: Grilled Monkfish at Atzaró Beach

Fusing the farm-fresh flavours of the Ibiza tierra with the bounty of the Mediterranean Sea, the talented chefs at Atzaró Beach draw on time honoured recipes to create a variety of home-style dishes that look as good as they taste. Add to that the incredible vistas across the beach of Cala Nova and it’s easy to see why this year-round beach club attracts the who’s who of the visiting jet set in addition to the local foodie crew.

Allowing the simplicity of the fresh monkfish to shine, the fillet is grilled to perfection and served atop a classic mix of lightly sauteed veggies fresh from the Atzaró organic farm: think carrot, courgette, broccoli, onion, aubergine and cauliflower (and anything else that’s in season at the time). The colourful plate is then given a further dose of vibrancy with a drizzle of homemade pesto sauce, adding the delectable flavours of basil, garlic, pine nuts and local olive oil to the mix.
